Dexter Fowler Encourages Blood Donations to Support Red Cross

User News Image

In the United States, a new donation of blood is needed every two seconds, and a single donation can save multiple lives.

Houston Astros’ centerfielder, Dexter Fowler hopes his influence can help and has agreed to donate $1,000 for each registered blood donation made to the Red Cross between now and Oct. 31, up to $75,000. To support his campaign, the American Red Cross will host a blood drive from 12p.m. to 6p.m. on Monday, October 27 at the Greater Houston Area Chapter, 2700 Southwest Fwy.

All Houstonians are encouraged to donate blood or participate in spreading the word about the cause. Individuals wanting to make an appointment can visit redcrossblood.org and use sponsor code FowlersHowler or download the Red Cross Donor App and join Dexter Fowlers team within the app. You can follow Dexter Fowler on facebook or twitter @Dexterfowler and Instagram @Dexfowler.
